Bellator 89 Predictions
Make sure to tune in for this event at 8:00 PM on Spike.tv for the prelims and at 10:00, Spike TV will be featuring the main card.
Eduardo Dantas vs. Marcos Galvao: Okay, we all know that Dantas was knocked out in his last fight, a fight in which was supposed to be a warm up fight for him. It didn’t go so well so people are sort of overlooking Dantas now. Don’t do that! He is still one of the more exciting prospects in all MMA. Galvao is also a fantastic fighter who is very well rounded. His main weakness is his chin. He has been knocked out twice and rocked by several people. Dantas’ power is underrated and I believe he will knock Galvao down and look for the finish = Dantas via 3rd round submission.
Brian Rogers vs. Dan Cramer =
via split decision.
Brett Cooper vs. Norman Paraisy = Cooper via unanimous decision.
Andreas Spang vs. Doug Marshall = Spang via 1st round KO.
Timothy Goodwin vs. Nathan Davis = Goodwin via 3rd round TKO.
Chris Mierzwiak vs. Johnny Buck = Buck via unanimous decision.
Kyle Bolt vs. Joe Pacehco = Bolt via unanimous decision.
Sultan Aliev vs. Mikkel Parlo = Parlo via 2nd round KO.
Aaron Johnson vs. Brennan Ward = Ward via 1st round KO.
David Mejia vs. Mont Mcmullens = Mejia via 1st round submission (strikes).
Eduardo Dantas vs. Marcos Galvao: I am very excited about this fight. Dantas is a killer but is coming off of a devastating loss to Tyson Nam and will be looking to rebound against a very tough and technical grappler in Marcos Galvao. I think Galvao’s best chance is to try and make this a slow grinding ground battle. If Dantas is allowed to fight his game, Galvao will be taken out early. This one is tough to pick but I think I’m going with the younger, stronger, faster champion. = Dantas by unanimous decision.
Dan Cramer vs. Brian Rogers = Rogers by unanimous decision.
Brett Cooper vs. Norman Paraisy = Cooper by split decision.
Doug Marshall vs. Andreas Spang = Spang by unanimous decision.
Nathan Davis vs. Tim Goodwin = Goodwin by unanimous decision.
Johnny Buck vs. Chris Mierzwiak = Buck by TKO in round 2.
Kyle Bolt vs. Joe Pacheco = Bolt by unanimous decision.
Sultan Aliev vs. Mikkel Parlo = Parlo by TKO in round 2.
Aaron Johnson vs. Brennan Ward = Ward by KO in round 1.
Mont McMullens vs. David Mejia = Mejia by KO in round 1.
